    The table is a statement making piece. It turned out beautifully and it is everything that I wanted. Can't wait to have guest over for dinner and really show off the piece. Will be using this for family gatherings for years to come.

    True artists sign their work. It’s what they do. It’s a mark of pride and the heart and soul put into the work that eventually becomes their legacy. The second we saw New Life Woodworking branded into the underside of our table, we knew we had something special.

    Using reclaimed hardwoods from discarded bowling lanes, Ian provided us with exactly what we were looking for: a modern, durable, one-of-a-kind table built to our custom size and specifications. Ian provided several commercial-grade options for the legs, giving us the exact style and height we wanted. The photo falls short of depicting his true skills.

    We highly recommend New Life Woodworking. From our first online conversations, through the design process and all the way to the curbside delivery, Ian is a true master craftsman and a wonderful person to work with.

    There's something really special about taking a piece of wood that may be 75 years old, giving it New Life and making it into something else that will serve a purpose be a part of someones life for decades to come.
